Latin Roots #50 - Judy Cantor-Navas On Cuban Musical Christmas Traditions

Judy Cantor-Navas On Cuban Musical Christmas Traditions

December 24, 2013 - It’s the first of two special Latin Roots Christmas segments this year today with Judy Cantor-Navas, an editor with Billboard Magazine with an extensive knowledge of Latin music. She’ll talk about the distinction between Christmas music before and after the Cuban Revolution taking into account the political changes. She has also provided us with a Spotify playlist to continue the celebration.

Latin Roots is made possible by a grant from The Wyncote Foundation.
